I don't know what bands are available. The B&W 5m-resolution imagery is
less expensive than the 1m true colour stuff, of course, but should be
sufficient to plot street maps.

I would contribute towards fulfilling a minimum order for IKONOS data,
but unfortunately, the tiles in the order must be adjacent, and I have
no use for London/UK data.
